A luxury hideaway with a unique design, indulgent spa, magical views and facilities for all ages.

A member of the Autograph Collection, which celebrates unique, characterful properties of the highest quality, Domes of Elounda combines Mediterranean architecture with the opulence of ancient Greece. Its setting is fabulously romantic for honeymooners, yet it’s excellent for families too, with a well thought-out design that keeps facilities separate enough to make sure everyone’s happy.

Head through the underground tunnel to the private narrow stretch of natural beach, where there’s a decked walkway lined with olive trees and a quiet zone for those seeking peace and solitude. Dining at Domes is as laid-back or romantic as you choose. Tholos serves buffets while Topos 1910 offers innovative seafood dishes on a decked promontory leading out to sea. Two new restaurants include Yaosai for Asian cuisine and Blend specialising in Italian fusion.

The huge suites are individually designed and are light and airy. All offer an outdoor pool or heated Jacuzzi. Premium Suites Gardenview with Jacuzzi have a heated Jacuzzi on the balcony. For families – and particularly families with older children – the Family Luxury Suites are ideal as they have two en-suite bedrooms for added space and privacy. The Domes family plaza has a family focus, with a large family pool and shaded kids’ pool with cooling fountains. Secluded Domes Luxury Residences have sea views, their own private eco-heated pool with whirlpool and waterfall, and benefits including a villa manager and use of the resort’s chauffeured club car.

Haute Living Selection
The new ‘Haute Living Selection’, featuring Domes Private Residences, Domes Luxury Residences and Domes Luxury Villas, offers a new accommodation selection with exclusive club level services. ‘Haute Living Selection’ guests have access to a whole new level of luxury, including a private lounge, exclusive gym facilities, a reserved beach area, afternoon tea and signature canapés from the resort’s executive chef as well as the benefit of Dine Around.
